An anticonvulsant prevents or reduces the frequency of convulsions in various types of
seizure disorders or epilepsy. Ideally, anticonvulsants depress abnormal spontaneous
activity of the brain arising from areas of scar or tumor, without affecting normal brain
Here are listed examples of anticonvulsants:
carbamazepine (Tegretol), felbamate (Felbatol), gabapentin (Neurontin), levetiracetam (Keppra), phenytoin sodium (Dilantin), pregabalin (Lyrica), valproic acid (Depakote).
